|BRIEF HISTORY :
The village is famous as the birth place of Chandidas, the famous poet. The mound is full of brick-bats and brick-built Temples. The bigger Temples are of no interest, amongst the smaller ones (c.17th-18th century AD), four have plaster decorations and two ornamental brick facing. The mound called "Chandidasas's Bhita", was excavated by the university of Calcutta in 1945-46 but nothing important was found. The mound is datable to c. 14th century AD and the Temples are of c. 18th century AD. Excavation has been conducted at the mound by the Archaeological Survey of India (Eastern Circle) in 1964.
